Donald Trump

Teams of law enforcement and security officers removed more than a half-dozen groups of people who interrupted Donald Trump's rally in Concord, North Carolina Monday.

Before Trump even took the stage, a group of more than a dozen young people, clad mostly in black, were escorted out of the building after linking hands and standing to the side of the stage.

The final two people escorted from the arena held three fingers in the air in a kind of salute. One of the men had on a yellow emblem reading, "Stop Islamophobia."

Trump paused at each interruption as his supporters simultaneously booed the protesters and cheered on law enforcement. "Go home to mommy," he said, as one man was removed. "Let her tuck you in bed."

Trump spent much of his time on stage discussing trade and his ability to create jobs, including here in North Carolina, where his Trump National Golf Club sits about an hour from the arena where he spoke Monday. He also led the crowd in a pledge to cast their votes for him in North Carolina's primary, which will be held March 15. Early voting has already begun.

The real estate mogul returns to the state on Wednesday, when he holds another rally at the Crown Center Coliseum in Fayetteville.

On Saturday, Trump won the Louisiana primary and the Kentucky caucuses. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won caucuses in Kansas and Maine.
